Evernote Peek, a learning app that used iPad 2’s smart cover, has now been upgraded which enables its use even without the cover.
Evernote is basically an app that allows you to take note on the touch screen of iPad 2 just like you do on a physical notebook. With Evernote you can share and store it virtually and access it any time and also allows search.
However, not all iPad 2 users own a smart cover and to address that the new version of the app has been launched. It has a virtual cover that mimics the physical smart cover.
Now, when you launch Evernote Peek, you’ll be able to swipe down a tab and select a virtual cover of your choice — it’s available in 10 colours.
From there, it’s just like using a real smart cover. Choose your study materials, close the cover, peek to see the clue, open the cover to see the answer, shut the cover and repeat. All this is done by simply swiping the screen. You may need to enable the virtual cover in the application settings.
Peek is still best experienced with an iPad 2 and a real Apple smart cover, but the virtual cover provides a nice alternative.
